I used an extra HIM shirt and some black fabric to make an awesome laptop bag for myself. It has a side pocket just for my glasses case. Inside is 2 compartments separated by fabric. The separating piece has 3 pockets (1 for my laptop cord, 1 for my ipod, and one for pens or random stuff). When I first made it, the strap wasn’t wide enough so it dug into my shoulder a lot. After I made a laptop bag for my sister, I went back and created a much wider strap for my bag.
black cotton HIM shirt, black material (not really sure what kind it is). I used my laptop, ipod, and glasses case as references for size because I kept messing up somehow when I just used measurements.
